Glad someone got this posted, beat me!

To add to this I heard yesterday that Seattle Corp. office is having the larger station look at the financial feasibility of moving to closer gate and/or sharing gates in some cities. San Francisco has been exploring the possible move to the E concourse in terminal 3.

IF they move to Terminal 3, what will happen to the AS Boardroom in SFO? Also, is the codeshare with AA stronger than that with NW?

Here's the official AS word on this:



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 11, 2004

ALASKA AIRLINES, HORIZON AIR AND AMERICAN AIRLINES
FINALIZE CODESHARE AGREEMENT

SEATTLE — Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air and American Airlines finalized a new codeshare agreement that will ultimately provide Alaska and Horizon customers’ access to more than 100 new destinations served by American.
Starting February 15, Alaska and Horizon will have their “AS” code on American Airlines flights between Seattle and St. Louis and between Los Angeles (LAX) and the following points: Austin, Fort Lauderdale, Newark, New York’s Kennedy Airport, St. Louis, Washington’s Dulles Airport, Honolulu, Kona, Lihue and Maui.

In exchange, American will place its “AA” code on Alaska and Horizon flights within the western United States and Pacific Northwest, an area of the country where American has limited presence, as well as between select transcontinental routes. In total, 30 new destinations will become available to American Airlines customers once the codeshare is fully implemented.

“For Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air customers, our expanded partnership with American Airlines is all about more destinations, more frequency and more choice of service than ever before,” said Gregg Saretsky, executive vice president of marketing and planning for Alaska. “It benefits passengers by providing a broader range of travel options and strengthens three great carriers with a shared commitment to customer service.”

“We’re excited to bring more new destinations to our customers,” said Henry Joyner, American’s senior vice president-planning. “These additional destinations will help both business and leisure customers more conveniently fly American. One of the things our customers value about American Airlines is the breadth of our route network. With the launch of our expanded codeshare with Alaska, an already exceptional structure will get even better.”

The relationship not only benefits customers, but it’s also a cost-effective means of generating new traffic and competing more effectively against airlines that already have larger codeshare networks in place.

American and Alaska will continue to offer the ability to earn and redeem frequent flyer miles on one another, a relationship that they’ve had since 1999.

Precisely Shocked we don't see MIA-SEA in there. AA operated it in the past with a 763 (I'm sure the MIA guru above could help with that one). I'm sure there is really enough premium traffic in my mind to warrant another flight between those markets. You gotta be thinking that next on the drawing board for AA are MIA-PHX, SEA, and possibly SAN.

Any expectation that AA may move from the D concourse into the B or C Concourse at PDX so they can be alongside AS? Seems like AS doesn't need all the gates it has on B and C.
